One thing I've noticed with parallel check-world is that it's possible
for a sub-job to fail and for the resulting complaint from make to scroll
offscreen before everything stops, leaving all the visible output being
from another sub-job that completed just fine.  If you don't look VERY
closely, or check $?, you can easily be misled into thinking the tests
all passed.

I think it'd be a good idea to fix check-world so that there's a positive
printout at the end of a successful run, along the lines of the

        +@echo "All of PostgreSQL successfully made. Ready to install."

we have for the "all" target.
